the candidates are back on the campaign trail today. president obama starts out where he left off in denver then he heads to madison wisconsin. joe biden is in iowa and mitt romney is in virginia. but who wants to talk about all of that when what you really want to talk about is the debates. a lot of claims thrown around last night. we're going to do some fact checking for you this morning. but first let's start out with a bit of a recap. of the debate was moderated by mitt romney. oh wait, we mean jim lehrer who i think it is safe to say did worse than expected. the president did not perform up to his usual standards and mitt romney came out swinging taking a very offensive approach against the president as well as jim lehrer, big barned the entire pbs crew. the debate focus around the economy as we knew it would and the candidates traded jabs over tax policies for the middle class. >> romney: under the president's policies middle income americans have been buried. they've been crushed. i will not under any circ

be frustrated that president barack obama cannot enact his legislative agenda without the help of a sympathetic congress. we're going to get back to more of that. but first, randy is on our line for republicans. randy, where you calling from this morning? >> chapel hill, north carolina. host: all right. so, are you one party, divided government? how do you come down on this one? caller: well, i just always wanted to say keep the system in congress the way it is. but here's the deal, and i'll be quick. i have two separate caucuses control their own taxes. republicans, their caucus would control all the taxes that republicans pay, and we republicans could pay for all the b.t. bombers and the infrastructure, all the things that we want, and the democrats can take all of their taxes they collect and pay for the social programs. and then, in the middle, all the sings that we both absolutely agree on, we just cut it in half and pay for that and then that way the things that each other don't like, both sides, we'd be able to pay for their own things that they want. host: that is a very interesting way

the debate but bit obama didn't bring it up so he couldn't. this is something he really wanted to distance himself from, soledad, because it has been seen as the source of a lot of problems for mitt romney in the last month. we saw polls widen between president obama and mitt romney especially in key battleground states. but make no mistake the obama campaign is not going to let him get away completely with this reversal. they have been running campaign ads with his own words in the fund-raiser and i think we are going to see them continue to hit him on the 47% and say you know what, this is what we think he accident there's also conversations about an obama flip-flop as well. tell me about that. >> this is kind of a flip-flop, i would say, on enthusiasm or tone. i think whether we were watching president obama on wednesday, it was very much a passive president obama. certainly wasn't what i was expecting, having been object the campaign trail with president obama. he campaigned yesterday in denver in wisconsin and really fired up and really calling mitt romney on what he saw smas of his i

election day. there's big news on fundraising and this hour. president obama and the democrats raised $181 million in september. that is the highest election monthly total so far. meanwhile the romney camp claims it has collected more than $12 million in online donations and seeing bigger crowds on the campaign trail since wednesday's debate. but these numbers are still seizing the headlines according to conspiracy theories. jobless rate down to 7.8%, the lowest since the president took office. total employment increased 872,000. that's the biggest jump in the monthly number since june 1983. both candidates weighed in on the numbers. let's take a listen. >> we have learned that the unemployment rate is now at its lowest level since i took office. more americans are entering the work force. more americans are getting jobs. but too many of our friends and neighbors are still looking for work or struggling to pay the bills. many of them since long before this crisis hit. we owe it to them to keep moving forward. we've come too far to turn back now. >> do you realize that the number of people

.8% in september, a drop of .3% in august. the current rate is the lowest level since president obama took office. critics of the president question the bounceback. some suggesting the books may even have been cooked. jack welch, the former v. owe of general electric, tweeted this. welch later came on cnn's "anderson cooper 360" and said if he had that tweet to do over again, he would have added one thing. >> so many politicians these days are saying like michele bachmann will say something that factually is nocht correct and they'll say i'm just asking the question. is it responsible to say i'm just asking the question, but to say they'll do anything. >> i should have put the question mark. a question mark would have been better at the back of that. >> so you are kind of backing away -- >> i'm not backing away. >> you wish you could amend your tweet? >> i wish i added a question mark to the back of it. but the same implications. >> to say something like this is like donald trump saying that president obama is not an american citizen without any proof. you are jack welch. you got to take this opp

virginia. president obama will be in northern virginia tomorrow. >> the candidates kept things civil during last night's debate in denver. they were still pointed, though, in criticizing each other's policies and plans. the president went after mitt romney on how he plans to pay for his tax cuts. mitt romney used vice president joe biden's own words in describing the middle class's struggles. >> you think by closing looph e loopholes and deductions for the well-to-do, somehow you will not end up picking up the tab, then governor romney's plan may work for you. but i think math, common sense, and our history shows us that's not a recipe for job growth. >> under the president's policies, middle income americans have been buried. they're just being crushed. middle income americans have seen their income come down by $4,300. this is a tax in and of itself. i'll call it the economy tax. it's been crushing. >> earlier in the week, vice president biden had said the middle class has been buried for the past four years. the issue they came closest to agreeing on, social security. the candidates her

that president obama can't use it against him going forward. >> it was a good line he used with sean hannity. he probably was prepared to use it in the debate but he didn't get the chance because president obama didn't bring up the 47%. >>> president obama is back at a rally in wisconsin yesterday, the president sounded more like his supporters wanted him to sound during the debate as he mocked mitt romney. >> when i got on the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney's been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy. and yet, the fellow on the stage last night, who looked like mitt romney, said he did not know anything about that. >> a spirited president obama last night, somewhat different president than we saw at the debate a couple nights ago. the president hits two more battleground states today, virginia and ohio. >> some people are wondering where was president obama, right? it was a different president obama as well. >> i think
